Picross 3D shows how DLC is done right. End of story.


i'm not familar - what did it do?

OT - i like DLC when done right, don't bash all DLC just because some of it is a waste of money.  just be an intelligent consumer and buy what makes sense.

Are you kidding.  DLC has been one of the best additions to consoles this gen.  And games like Smash Bros Brawl or Pokemon Battle Revolution should have had it long ago.

Nintendo also thinks like OP and that every game they release should be perfect.  But that's not always the case, with bugs or broken characters and more.  And even taking that into account, DLC is not this evil thing that brings down production values.  Look at a game like Red Dead Redemption.  It had a 50 hour main game and TONS of content.  Then it just had 5 additional free DLC packs added later to expand multiplayer options.

I for one hope the next Nintendo system has an option for DLC.  Smash Bros Brawl would have been one of the best games this gen if it had additional levels/level editor options for DLC.

Brawl did have free additional levels/level editor.  They offered a free download map of the week (or whatever, never got too much into the online play because of the lag issue) for awhile and you could create your own stages.

I believe DLC is great. Its done more good then bad. Day 1 dlc is just a way for the developers to get people to buy the game early insentive. Also, DLC just further adds to the game for a usual fair price. The latest expansion of Call of Duty for example adds 4 maps and a Zombie map for 15$ and thats a steal. In Killzone 3, 2 maps for 5 dollars is also not bad. However i think you are missing the best part of all, not having to buy the  DLC in the first place. You don't need DLC and anything extra is just that, an extra. 

$15 for four maps and a zombie map is a steal?

I got minecraft for that amount. Heck, I got Age of Mythology Titans expansion for $20, and it added a lot more than just five maps. I can buy Company of heroes at my local gamestop for around $15, I can buy Battlefield2 along with every single expansion for it for around $25.

$15 for five maps sounds overpriced to me.



I LOVE ICELAND!

Maybe to you but to someone who played it for hundreds of hours its a steal. I mean i agree its not the best dlc i have seem, but its ALOT better than the normal 3 maps for 15$ that they do lol. Either way it can be 100$ it still is not neccassary. you get your 60$ worth with the game anything extra is just extra.

The game comes with a huge amount of puzzles (about 400), so it avoids the biggest annoyance of DLC: The game feeling incomplete. Even if you have no access to DLC, Picross 3D is well worth its money.

Right from release day, Nintendo offered a bunch (usually four or five) of new puzzles every week, for free. In addition to that, they held monthly competitions where users could send their creations (the game has an editor) based on a specific topic to Nintendo and the ten best ones were then available for download after the competition ended. So over the course of a year there were another 250-300 puzzles added to the game. I think you can only save up to 240, but it's not that big of a deal.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I hate DLC. It was a good idea, and on rare occassion it still can be good but the reality is nowadays 99% of DLC is just stuff that should have been included in the game from the start. The industry has corrupted DLC. It's now just a way to nickel and dime consumers. Nintendo has been like an ancient bastion by forgoing this trend in thier own first party games. It will be a sad day indeed when even Nintendo succumbs to the DLC craze.

Yes, but they never had DLC that improved the very basic level editor or patches to fix the characters (aka MetaKnight and Snake).  Also they only released one level at a time.  Thousands of people could never share their levels.

They could have done a lot better basically.  And no Wii game as far as I know has DLC that modified the base game.

Unfortunately I have to agree. The idea was good, add content that due to time or other factors could not be included on the game at launch without the need for expansions or sequels, but the change of getting easy money corrupted them.

Although there are exceptions, like Burnout Paradise or GTA IV.

DLC is good but sadly is abused, a few games like mentioned above LBP does it right then we have the other 90% which have the DLC coming out the day of the game. By far the worst offenders of DLC are fighters who just start pumping out coustumes the first day that could be easily put into the games disc. I like the idea of DLC but it doesn't seem like the abuse of it will stop anytime soon..
